We’re living through a time where people,
organizations and societies not only rely but thrive
upon secure, simple and fast access to information.
From small businesses, startups, enterprises and
global conglomerates across all verticals; to local, state

and nonprofits, we are continuously investing in
our employees, devices, applications, networks and

Ten years ago, business and technology leaders
catalyzed a cloud app revolution that has changed the
way organizations manage IT. However, through this
transformative shift, the core requirements of IT remain
the same. Technology leaders are responsible for
ensuring that 1) information assets remain confidential
and protected, 2) information systems are available
and operational, and 3) people are empowered and
productive with the apps and information they need.

Onvia’s 3 Trends Shaping State & Local Contracting Growth in 2015 reflects on important trends that will shape government contracting over the coming year.
Highlights from the report:
• 2014 Review: A “slowing trend” in competitive opportunities, due to macro political-economic factors, with context for expected changes in 2015.
• 2015 Trend 1: Potential for stronger growth driven by an expected rebound in government tax revenue and greater bond income for large debt-financed infrastructure projects.
• 2015 Trend 2: Technology contracting volume gains traction in non-IT industry sectors, with insight into five niche technologies shaping 2015 procurement.
• 2015 Trend 3: Cooperative purchasing influences the overall state and local agency market, with implications for both local and national competitors.
This white paper explains the role local tax compliance plays
in successful supply chain management and e-business initiatives more broadly and how leading global brands and governments are addressing this need.
This paper explores ways for government to provide Citizens access before or after hours and conduct government business--much as they can log on to their computers whenever they want to buy from Amazon.com.
The latest IT tools and techniques can bring benefit to policy implementation in Government, as well as to administration and operations. This new role for IT can not only speed up the implementation of policy changes, but enable more effective targeting of those policies. This paper explains how. Oracle provides standard COTS software that can do this, and how such solutions have already been proven in Government Ministries.
Virtually every business-oriented conversation Wikibon has with senior IT leaders
includes a discussion of digital transformation. The relevance to this research is the
increasing interdependency between organizations and the data they use, create,
access, share and store. Digital means data and lots of it; and this data must be
protected. The data requirements facing organizations today as a direct result of digital
initiatives are unprecedented and require new approaches for protecting and enabling
recovery for high value data assets.
Governments around the world are trying to keep pace with the digital tsunami and
new/evolving regulations will further pressure data protection and recovery
requirements. For example, the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
states that organizations must take appropriate measures to ensure the ability to restore
personal data “in a timely manner in the event of a physical or technical incident.”
Beginning in May of 2018, penalties for non-co
The purpose of IT backup and recovery systems is to avoid data loss and recover
quickly, thereby minimizing downtime costs. Traditional storage-centric data protection
architectures such as Purpose Built Backup Appliances (PBBAs), and the conventional
backup and restore processing supporting them, are prone to failure on recovery. This
is because the processes, both automated and manual, are too numerous, too complex,
and too difficult to test adequately. In turn this leads to unacceptable levels of failure for
today’s mission critical applications, and a poor foundation for digital transformation
Governments are taking notice. Heightened regulatory compliance requirements have
implications for data recovery processes and are an unwelcome but timely catalyst for
companies to get their recovery houses in order. Onerous malware, such as
ransomware and other cyber attacks increase the imperative for organizations to have
highly granular recovery mechanisms in place that allow

Cybersecurity has become a leading topic both within and beyond the corporate boardroom. This attention is well-founded and marks a transition from information security being a concern primarily for businesses and governments to it being broadly acknowledged as an issue that impacts and requires the attention of everyone, from individual consumers to entire countries.
The term “Cloud First” was initially popularized by Vivek Kundra, who formerly held the post of White House CIO and launched this strategy for U.S. federal government IT modernization at the Cloud Security Alliance Summit 2011. The underlying philosophy of the cloud-first strategy is that organizations must initially evaluate the suitability of cloud computing to address emergent business requirements before other alternatives are considered.

Proprietary study reveals benefits of embracing disruptive technology vs. risks of waiting.
A recent survey of more than 400 technology decision makers across 13 industries indicates that early adoption of disruptive technology is seen as less risky than waiting. Among technology leaders across all industries, including Government & Public Safety, there is near consensus that adopting disruptive technology has become the price of doing business and staying in business.
Looking at IT security history, the bad guys were always far more sophisticated than the people who tried to stop them. Even if companies or the government could conceive of IT security it was almost impossible to achieve it because of the lack of knowledgeable security professionals out there and the lack of security protection tools in the marketplace.
